Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a natural alternative to help improve symptoms from an injured muscle, tendon, ligament, or joint. This technique uses your own blood and concentrates the unique growth factors and proteins you already possess in your blood to enhance your body’s healing pathways.
Not all PRP is created equally. Four Oaks Regenerative Medicine uses a PRP collection and concentration system that maximizes patient outcomes. This can help delay or oftentimes prevent painful and costly surgery down the line.
A2M – Alpha 2 Macroglobulin
Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) occurs naturally in your body and is processed in a technique similar to PRP, but goes through additional filtration to isolate the A2M molecules. These molecules capture harmful enzymes that are then eliminated by the body. A2M can help your body reduce inflammation and restore joint health.
Exosomes are tiny extracellular vesicles secreted from a cell that function in cell to cell communication. This communication plays a role in activating your body’s own healing pathways through cytokines, chemokines, and growth factors. Exosomes use the signals released from the cell, rather than the cell itself.
Amniotic Fluid and Cord Blood Products
These are biologic tissues derived from umbilical cord and amniotic tissue that do not contain any cells. Despite what you may have read, at no time will you be injected with somebody else’s cells. The tissue is rigorously screened and tested prior to preservation. While not containing any cells, there are helpful growth factors, cytokines, and specialty proteins that can promote healing.
It is important to note, the regenerative medicine products used and treatments performed by our doctors are intended to modulate your body’s normal healing cascade. These therapies have helped numerous patients, but are not intended for nor effective in everyone and are not a “cure-all” for disease. While products and treatments used are cleared for general use by the FDA, the specific indications for treatment may not have been reviewed by the FDA. The exosomes you receive are isolated in the US in federally compliant facilities. You are urged to consult with your primary care physician prior to undergoing a regenerative medicine treatment.
